THE GENERAL LINEAR MODEL IN MAP PREPARATION AND ANALYSIS

THE GENERAL LINEAR MODEL IS THE CONNECTING THREAD THAT WEAVES THROUGH MANY ASPECTS OF MAP PREPARATION, MAP ANALYSIS, AND MAP INTERPRETATION. IN ITS CONVENTIONAL FORM THE GENERAL LINEAR MODEL IS THE BASIS FOR SUCH MULTIVARIATE MAPS AS THE Q-MODE FACTOR MAP AND THE DISCRIMINANT FUNCTION MAP. IN ITS TWO-DIMENSIONAL FORM THE GENERAL LINEAR MODEL IS THE BASIS FOR THE POLYNOMIAL AND FOURIER MAP-ANALYSIS MODELS, BOTH OF WHICH ARE WIDELY USED IN A VARIETY OF GEOLOGICAL FIELDS. ALL VARIANTS OF THE GENERAL LINEAR MODEL CAN BE REDUCED TO A SIMPLE MATRIX EQUATION. COEFFICIENT SPACE, DEVELOPED IN THE EARLIER PART OF THIS REPORT, IS FURTHER EXAMINED AND THE EXTENSION OF MAP ANALYSIS TO THE ESTIMATION OF TRENDS IN COEFFICIENT MATRICES IS INTRODUCED WITH AN EXAMPLE. /AUTHOR/
